A great mix of food, good home cooked pub food with lovely chips. Great Sunday lunch type dinner for our granddaughter, the beef was lovely and melted in the mouth. Prawns with chilli sauce recommended. Would visit again,

Great mix of food and drink. Lovely location by the canal with friendly staff. Good home cooked pub food with all the usual and some tasty specials. Good sized restaurant but you need to book Sunday lunch as it gets very busy! I love the chips and home cooked pies! Great puds to share too! A wide variety of drinks... More

As we live in the area we often frequent the Canal Tavern for lunch or Evening meal. The food is simple but delicious and very reasonably priced. The welcome is always friendly and the atmosphere in the small restaurant is intimate. There has not been any trouble or rowdiness when we have visited. Highly recommended!

I'm rating this on its carvery and it get 4 stars. These guys know how to cook a joint of meat and a wide choice of fresh 'real' veg makes for the perfect Sunday plate. Nice to be asked 'one Yorkshire pudding or two?' And the stuffing had actual sausage meat in rather than the usual mush -or dry crumbs,... More

The atmosphere when entering was pleasant with l comfortable seating for those wishing for a meal There were a number of beers and lager on offer unfortunately only 2 real ales. The menu was adequate if not extensive., The staff were all friendly and attentive. We... More

Have eaten here a few times and have always been pleased, there is a varied menu plus daily specials. The food is well presented and tasty, the chips are to die for. If you haven't been for a while give it a try, it's the best pub food in the area and very reasonable on the wallet.
